    Can you be more specific about what you want to know?

    There is a book on the subject. Follow the Flow or something like that.

    What is your rate? Do you have a sleeper and two drivers? Do you have your own nets and spreader boards? Have you hauled loads of bees before? What is your rig like? Air ride suspension and an aluminum decked trailer?

    How about experience working around bees? Do you have your own bee suits/coveralls and veils and gloves? Would you be out helping load and net the hives? Or would you be hanging out in the truck while the load is being loaded?

    Just a few questions. Things I think about and like in a Trucker.

    Things I would also like to know. We are always looking for good truckers and we wouldn't even make you help load the truck. Also, where in Iowa are you located?

    How many hives go on a Semi? I am thinking double deeps going. Coming back typically how many because they are full.?

    One thing sqk forgot: Who is your insurance through and what kind of limits are on the policy? Will they cover the cleanup after you loose a load of bees? Will they cover the costs of replacement and loss revenue for the beekeeper?

    Do you get freight insurance and cover the loads yourself?

    No. I wonder if my Business Insurance covers what you are asking about. I do have Insurance on my hives, but more than ten have to be destroyed. I don't recall what we valued them. And I don't know if they are covered in transit or just while on the ground.
